Laptop to Desktop file sharing

This question is not answered

I want to be able to access files on the desktop using my laptop, and vice versa.

I have a Sagem, Sky wireless router that connects the laptop wirelessly to the internet. Desktop to router is via ethernet cable.

Would using an ethernet crossover cable be the best, easiest way to do this?

Advice would be much appreciated.
